Message from Tourism Australia
Enjoy Sydney’s natural beauty, from unspoilt beaches to public gardens and, of course, the sparkling harbour, before discovering its thriving restaurants and markets. Top it off with a trip to the Blue Mountains, a popular excursion among locals. “Sydney is one of the world’s most vibrant cities, and is also a gateway to the rest of Australia. It’s exciting and vibrant.” - René Redzepi, Chef and co-owner of Noma, Copenhagen. International flights fly directly into Sydney Airport from many global hubs. From the airport it’s an easy 20 minute taxi or train ride to the city centre.
